After more than two years of back and forth in family court, Frank and Jamie McCourt have reportedly reached a settlement agreement regarding their property division and the ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team. The deal will not be final until it is signed by the presiding family court judge and accepted by the bankruptcy court overseeing the Dodgers' bankruptcy, but it is a promising step in this high-asset divorce, considering the long history of disputed claims and court battles between the spouses.
According to a statement from Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, he and his wife, Stephanie, have separated. Although the couple has not yet announced whether they plan to seek a divorce, Falcons fans are already wondering whether the split will be similar to one the most newsmaking high-asset divorces in professional sports: that of Frank and Jamie McCourt, the owners of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Everything seems big in the divorce and property division case of Frank and Jamie McCourt; the asset figures being bandied about; the legal fees; the number of houses involved; and the sheer and pricey acreage at stake.
